From 2007 to 2012, Aline Forçain pursued her European artistic education in schools of Fine Arts in Toulouse (FR) and Brussels (BE) and as well as at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Complutense University in Madrid (SP). Thanks to this multi-faceted training, she decompartmentalizes her artistic practice by opening a field of possibilities on contemporary creation. Her art is mainly based on drawing, painting, engraving and photography.
Coming from an agricultural background, Aline Forçain is interested in the gap existing between an imagined landscape and the fact of consciously living within and with nature. She especially creates graphic landscapes, on the edge of figuration and abstraction, in which her creative gestures engage temporalities inspired by natural rhythms. Her artistic research is therefore oriented towards an aesthetic of detail in relation with our human condition and against Western pace. It is an ode to manual activity that our contemporary society tries to make invisible thanks to the exploitation system. She also seeks to transmit a vibratory frequency through the accumulation of detail and through colour, to apprehend the auratic character of art by sharing emotions of a sensitive or spiritual nature. She intertwines four dimensions including body, emotion, mind and intellect to conceive art objects close to human sensitivity. They invite the viewer to wander the territory of the representation not to forget who we are. She draws further inspiration from literature, philosophy and "popular beliefs". Caravaggio, Francisco de Goya, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Hilma af Klint, Augustin Lesage, Mark Rothko and Wolgang Laib are her main influences.
Since 2010 she has participated in artist residencies and group exhibitions in Europe. In 2016, she completed a public commission for the institution of the Cercle Cité and in 2019 the gallery of Nosbaum Reding Projects organised her first personal exhibition. In 2020 she was selected for the European residency by Kult XL Ateliers in Brussels. To carry out her residency project she obtained three grants from the Luxemburg Ministry of Culture and the Fondation Eté. Aline Forçain exhibited in the collective show Within the folds of time at the Art et marges museum in Brussels. She recently participated in the artistic residency programme of the Villa Empain - Fondation Boghossian.
